ChEM-H Baker Family Co-Director Carolyn Bertozzi and ChEM-H Institute Scholar Laura Dassama discuss the intersection of science and social media. Keep up with Stanford ChEM-H on Twitter: @Stanford_ChEMH.
Watching the movement of every cell in an adult animal all at once, the Prakash lab discovered ultra-fast cellular contractions. This research suggests a new role for cellular contractions in tissue cohesion, which could be the basis of a new material.
A computational tool designed by ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Ami Bhatt and colleagues makes it easier to identify the source of bloodstream infections and, ideally, rid patients of reservoirs where potentially troublesome microbes reside.
Using a new variation of gene-editing technology CRISPR, Stanford ChEM-H Institute Scholar Stanley Qi and colleagues were able to change the spatial organization of DNA in cell nuclei and show how physical relocation altered cell function.
Stanford researchers have found that malignant breast cancer cells can extend protrusions known as invadopodia to dig escape tunnels through surrounding tissue, revealing a possible new target for therapies.
As chemist Carolyn Bertozzi takes on a new role as Baker Family Co-Director, Stanford ChEM-H, she talks about bridging gaps between chemistry research and medical practice and preparing graduate students for the future.
For us, figuring out how hard something is requires only a simple touch. From the stiff surface of a stone to the fluffy delight of snow – we effortlessly measure objects’ tautness every day. But for scientists, figuring out the mechanical properties of an object, such as how stiff or soft...
Two graduate students and their respective advisers, ChEM-H faculty fellows Christina Smolke and John Boothroyd, were awarded grants for scientific leadership and dedication to diversity and inclusion in the sciences.
